Our thanks to Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company (LG&E/KU) Director of Business and Economic Development, John Bevington, for presenting at today’s facility managers meeting. With nearly 1.3 million customers, LG&E and KU deliver nationally competitive electric rates and continue to make strategic investments in infrastructure and technology – ensuring communities are poised for economic growth.

At today’s meeting, Bevington discussed renewable energy options available to both residential and business customers. Programs discussed included:

  • Solar Share – Ideal for customers who want to support local solar while avoiding the up-front costs and long-term maintenance associated with a private system.
  • Green Energy Program – Ideal for customers interested in supporting the broader renewable energy industry by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates.
  • Business Solar – Ideal for customers interested in installing solar at their business without up-front costs or out of pocket expenses.
  • Renewable Power Agreement – Ideal for large business customers interested in diversifying their power supply with renewable energy.
  • Electric Vehicle Fleet – Ideal for businesses who want to empower their employees and/or patrons to drive electric.

Ranked 15th among the Top 20 U.S. Utilities in Economic Development by Site Selection Magazine, LG&E and KU were recognized for their efforts to promote economic development, including investing $2.2 billion in infrastructure improvements to benefit existing and future customers.

“Cultivating our relationships with existing customers and providing them with low-cost, reliable power and the infrastructure necessary to encourage growth is of paramount importance,” said Bevington. “That coupled with innovative incentives, forward thinking communities, and a dedicated team equal a winning formula.”
